Window Strike - ID Needed

Recommended Posts

@kcbirder, what's the form in the photo?  Is it an organized effort to gain data on window strikes?  Is this being done by a single building, or is it for an entire company, an industrial park, or other organization?  Do you know if the data is reported to an ornithological organization?

Thanks.

Charlie - I work for Johnson County Community College (JCCC) in Overland Park, Kansas.  Since January 1, 2018 we have been collecting and logging window strikes on our campus.  This form was created by the project manager and we log all the results in iNaturalist.org https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/jccc-bird-collision-study   We'll use the data to mitigate the strike areas.    The deceased birds are then put in bags, frozen and turned over to Kansas University.

EXCELLENT!  If only more building owners would do something like this AND THEN GET THE DATA POOLED ON A LARGE SCALE AND HAVE IT ANALYZED.
